Our topic for Autumn 1 is Do you want to be friends?


Sharing a Shell By Julia Donaldson

This topic will explore friendships and encourage the children to build relationships.

Reading : Once the children have settled in we will be sending home a reading book on a weekly basis. Please can you listen to your child read and use the reading record to report back on your child's progress. Reading books will be changed every Thursday.

School uniform : Please can you make sure all items of clothing, especially jumpers and cardigans, are labelled with your child’s name or initials. Your child will require a labelled pair of Wellington boots in school for outdoor use. 

The children will also need a named PE kit in school which can be kept for the whole term and will be sent home at the end. 

Autumn 1 music theme is named Me
